Friday, May 8, 2015 – Snark Attack
What has the Texas Legislature and Governor done for the people of Texas this week?
Open carry of handguns is shooting forward through session.
The Governor said he would sign a bill saying “clergy do not have to service people whose belief structure is against theirs.” Note: this is fancy bullshit language for discrimination and bigotry. And this has nothing to do with where people go to the bathroom.
Then the Governor decided to send the Texas State Guard to protect the people of Bastrop County from The Attack of the Federal Government. Was the Texas State Guard the military branch W. Bush was in?
And then to add sprinkles to the cupcakes, Texas State Representative David Simpson, REPUBLICAN from Longview, filed a bill Monday that would repeal the state’s ban on growing, possessing and selling marijuana – something he believes God intended.
Here are some quotes attributed to Mr. Simpson: “I don’t believe that when God made marijuana he made a mistake that government is to fix.” Or how about, “Civil government should value everything God made and leave people alone unless they meddle with their neighbor.” And finally, albeit taken out of context somewhat “All that God created is good, including marijuana.”
Am I the only one finding this triad worrisome? Hand guns, bigots and pot, Oh My! I hope there are enough sane people around when the zombie apocalypse takes place.
